The 72 Plant Vertical Garden This instructable will cover the details of the Vertical Garden built for my "Hydroponic, Automated, Networking, Climate Controlled Greenhouse Project". The vertical garden is a space saving way to grow up to 72 small plants (such as lettuce, spinach, strawberries and lots of different herbs) all with the plant health benefits of hydroponics. The Vertical Garden is designed with modularity in mind, to be brought into the greenhouse and installed as a single unit, with only connection to the existing plumbing required before you're ready to grow. Other Instructables that cover elements of the "Hydroponic, Automated, Networking, Climate Controlled Greenhouse Project" are listed below with many more to come: Part 1: Construction of the GreenhousePart 2: The 72 Plant Vertical Garden As of this moment the greenhouse's skeleton is all that is completed. Each major section of this project should be it's own instructable and when it's all finished I'll compile it into a guide.
Blog » The Top 10 Plants for Removing Indoor Toxins Common indoor plants may provide a valuable weapon in the fight against rising levels of indoor air pollution. NASA scientists are finding them to be surprisingly useful in absorbing potentially harmful gases and cleaning the air inside homes, indoor public spaces and office buildings. The indoor pollutants that affect health are formaldehyde, Volatile Organic Compounds (benzene and trichloroethylene or TCE), airborne biological pollutants, carbon monoxide and nitrogen oxides, pesticides and disinfectants (phenols), and radon. These pollutants contribute to ‘sick building syndrome’, which causes symptoms ranging from allergies, headaches and fatigue through to nervous-system disorders, cancer and death. Through studies conducted by NASA, scientists have identified 50 houseplants that remove many of the pollutants and gases mentioned above. More information on this study as well as references and details on specific chemicals can be found on Dr. Dr. 1. Also called the “Butterfly Palm”.
Growing Marijuana: Managing Small Plants Quick Note If you're looking for more on growing marijuana, start here: Anthony's Marijuana Growing Advice . If you have any questions, feel free to email me. Make sure to send me pictures of your plants so I can see what condition they're in. Make sure to inform me on the strain, lighting, soil/hydro, location, and any other information you may have so that I can help. Well folks I got a question in regards to my initial Marijuana Mondays post back in August. Question: How do you grow plants on a small scale? Root Zone First of all, to grow plants at that small scale you have to control the size of the root zone. Genetics Scientifically, marijuana's name is Cannabis Sativa. Sativas tend to grow tall and lanky (long internodal spacing) with thin-bladed leaves. Indicas are a bit shorter and stubby (tighter internodal spacing) with fat-bladed leaves. Ruderalis tends to be a funny situation. Science and Breeding Plant Management: Topping and Low Stress Training (LST) Light Control Conclusion
Diagnosis Of Mineral Deficiencies In Plants By Visual Symptoms - Wallace, 1943 The processes concerned in the growth of plants are the subjects of study by plant physiologists and plant biochemists. A comprehensive account of these processes is outside the scope of the present work, the special object of which is to deal with the outward and visible signs of imperfections in the plant's activities caused by faulty mineral nutrition. Nevertheless it is useful to have before us the general features of the main processes involved and to realize that the symptoms we shall be discussing later have a physiological basis, and are not direct and unchangeable signs of the specific deficiencies but result from the derangement of the complicated mechanism of the plant's vital activities. The main processes involved in plant development may be summarized as follows: Absorption: Intake of water and mineral elements by the root system. With all plants there are well defined seasonal growth cycles. Major elements: Nitrogen, phosphorus, calcium, magnesium, potassium, sulfur.
How to Grow The Top 10 Most Nutritious Vegetables in Your Garden By Colleen Vanderlinden Treehugger A perfectly ripe, juicy tomato, still warm from the sun. Sweet carrots, pulled from the garden minutes (or even seconds!) before they’re eaten. And don’t let the lack of a yard stop you – all of them can be grown in containers as well. 1. Broccoli is high in calcium, iron, and magnesium, as well as Vitamin A, B6, and C. How to Grow BroccoliGrow Broccoli in Containers: One broccoli plant per pot, pots should be 12 to 16 inches deep.What to Watch Out For: Cabbage worm. 2. There is nothing like peas grown right in your own garden – the tender sweetness of a snap pea just plucked from the vine is unlike anything you can buy in at a store. How to Grow PeasGrow Peas in Containers: Sow peas approximately 2 inches apart in a pot that is at least 10 inches deep. 3. While snap beans (green beans/wax beans) are a great addition to any garden, it’s the beans we grow as dried beans that are real nutritional powerhouses. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. OK, I cheated here.
16 Foods That’ll Re-Grow from Kitchen Scraps 15 October 2012 By Andy Whiteley Looking for a healthy way to get more from your garden? Like to know your food is free of the pesticides and other nasties that are often sprayed on commercial crops? Re-growing food from your kitchen scraps is a good way to do it! There’s nothing like eating your own home- grown vegies, and there are heaps of different foods that will re- grow from the scrap pieces that you’d normally throw out or put into your compost bin. It’s fun. Just remember … the quality of the “parent” vegetable scrap will help to determine the quality of the re-growth. Leeks, Scallions, Spring Onions and Fennel You can either use the white root end of a vegetable that you have already cut, or buy a handful of new vegetables to use specifically for growing. Simply place the white root end in a glass jar with a little water, and leave it in a sunny position. Lemongrass Lemongrass grows just like any other grass. Within a week or so, new growth will start to appear. Ginger Potatoes Garlic

Soil and Health Library 8 Perennial Vegetables For The Lazy Gardener | Reclaim, Grow, Sustain Over the course of a plant's life cycle, it germinates, grows, flowers, fruits, seeds, and then consequently dies leaving behind seeds for the next generation of plants. There are three varieties of plant life cycles, annual, biennial, and perennial. Annuals complete their life cycle within a single growing season. Biennials complete their life cycle within two growing seasons. And perennials live for more than two years, repeating the grow to seed process anew every season until the plant dies. The majority of vegetables people plant in gardens - lettuce, tomatoes, cucumbers, cabbage, peppers, carrots, beans, etc. - are annuals. On the other hand, perennials require one planting, some time to establish themselves, and will then continue to produce a crop every season. It can seem a bit silly planting annuals every year, especially when you could have perennials that you just wait to harvest each season. Asparagus Seeds germinate slowly and it takes three years before you can harvest.
Make Your Own Pop Bottle Drip Irrigation System | You Grow Girl The last time I forgot to water my outdoor potted plants and discovered them completely wilted and hanging on the cusp of near death, I decided it was time to take action. Some of the plants on my deck receive a full, searing sun all day long during the hottest mid summer days. While these plants thrive under such conditions if properly taken care of, they will die quickly if they don’t receive enough water. Although it has been unusually rainy this year in these parts, full sun deck plants will still get extremely hot and dry very quickly. One of the best ways to provide a steady water supply to your plants without your constant attention is the gradual watering system or drip irrigation. The materials you will need are as follows: 2 litre plastic soda bottle or water bottle that still has the lidDrill and small drill bitSharp knifeCutting surface Drill 4-8 small holes into the cap of the plastic bottle.
How to make hemp biodiesel | hemp fuel | hemp biodiesel How to Make hemp Bio DieselTitration method Safety first: Wear protective clothing and eyewear. This is a serious activity and it not recomended for a “weekend project”. This process is only for reference as to what skilled biodiesel makers would do. Measure Free Fatty Acid content of your oil: Mix 1 ml oil with 10 ml Isopropyl alcohol = 2 drops phenolthalian solution (available in a hobby shop chemistry set suppliers). Methanol You will need 200 ml of methanol per liter of Hemp Seed oil. Sodium Methoxide For each liter of hemp seed oil you need one gram of granular solid lye for each ml of 0.1% lye solution used in titration of free fatty acids plus 3.5 grams. Mixer The type of mixer depends on the size of the batch. Transesterfication: Once the lye catalyst is dissolved completely so that there is no sediment, then the oil may be added to the methanol lye mixture while mixing continuously. Drying: Water in the bio Diesel makes cloudy so it must be carefully heated.
